I have lived with my significant other for about 16 years. Eight years ago, Dave, who owns the house we live in said bring your dad to live with us. he was in his eighties and no other siblings were willing to take him in.
Dave was laid off work shortly after my dad moved in. For the past eight years, my dad and myself have paid ALL expenses of living for ourselves and Dave. Including his mortgage
, car payment, insurance, food, drink, cigarettes, gas, everything.
He had no equity in his house at the time my dad moved in. Now, he has about $150,000 if he were to sell the house. This would leave me high and dry, With my father getting older and weaker, he will not be there to help either. I feel we have both been used by Dave. I made his resume, I got him job interviews he wanted. to only ignore every one I set up until I said no more, do it yourself. Is there any way to secure part of the house for my dad and\or myself? Can I file a lien on his property? the basement has been finished recently also, to increase value. Thank you for your time.
